About the Publication
CURRENTLY ON HIATUS FROM PUBLISHING.
A magazine of American critical discourse.
The Firebrand Magazine is a progressive journal dedicated to creating fresh conversations about the future of democratic politics. We have a Robin Hood mentality, and represent a politically independent voice of polemic in American politics.
We’re avant-garde stylistically, because boredom is always counterrevolutionary. We have theory, we have philosophy, and most importantly, game.
“To be avant-garde means to move in step with reality.”
MSNBC‘s Weesie Vieira: The Firebrand Magazine recently posted a great review of Chris Hayes’ book “Twilight of the Elites,” saying that Chris’s discussion of American meritocracy and inequality “breaks away from the past without really trying, thus letting it recede and putting fresh theory into public discourse.” You can read the full review of “Twilight of the Elites” on The Firebrand’s website.
George Monbiot of The Guardian: “Over the Christmas break I read what I believe is the most important environmental essay of the past 12 months. [...] In a simple and very short tract, Matt Bruenig presents a devastating challenge to those who call themselves libertarians, and explains why they have no choice but to deny climate change and other environmental problems.”
